A new report has hinted that WWE Superstars could be about to get a whole lot more freedom in the ring, with a match on SmackDown providing the new blueprint.
Following the retirement of Vince McMahon many fans expected changes to be made within WWE, and the changes have arrived.
With Triple H taking over a Head of Creative, it has been reported that a new wave of optimism is building backstage, with talent generally excited about the new era.
Meanwhile, it has now been reported that WWE is loosening up it’s notoriously strict structure when it comes to promos and how matches are put together. Mike Johnson of PWInsider has noted that talent are now being given more freedom on the microphone, allowing them to improvise more.
The report goes on to say that they were told one of the big reasons behind the success of the match between Drew McIntyre and Sheamus on SmackDown was that much of the bout was called in the ring. This is opposed to having the action laid out spot for spot.
Following the chaotic brawl on SmackDown it was McIntyre who grabbed the win after putting Sheamus through a table and delivering a Claymore Kick. With victory the Scottish star booked himself a shot against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Clash at the Castle.
